perf probe: Finder fails to resolve function name to address
If DIE entries corresponding to declarations appear before definition entry, probe finder returns error instead of continuing to look further for a definition entry. This patch ensures we reach to the DIE entry corresponding to the definition and get the function address. V2: A simpler solution based on Masami's suggestion.
